Mechanical - Ansys

You are here:



ANSYS software is simulated computer software which is engineered to analyse the design and to find out the stress and strain on the desired objects. It is developed by ANSYS Inc. and headquartered in USA. It is general purpose software which can be used for simulation of diverse disciplines of electro mechanical, heat and mass transfer, structural vibration, fluid mechanics.

ANSYS Training deals FEA (Finite Element Analysis) which covers structural analysis (linear and nonlinear) and dynamic studies as well. FEA is used as a tool which provides a complete set of elements behaviour, material behaviour and equation solvers for diverse mechanical problems.

Ansys is truly a blessing to all design engineers. The use of ansys has revolutioned the way we do analysis of components before we come to final design conclusion.

Ansys helps optimise design to a great extent. It is essentially a solver that helps us simulate the loading conditions on the 3D model of the component. We then define the boundary conditions and let the software mesh and get the results.

By studying the results (postprocessing) one can learn where the component is undergoing maximum deflection and where the most stress is developed, it also lets us analyse various other parameters such as strain, temperature map, pressure mapping etc. All these can give us a virtual understanding as to what exactly happens to the component when it is being used in the real world. We can then improve the design if any of the stress/ deformation etc is more than the desirable value. Thus it aids us greatly to improve our design and also save money cause we can do a virtual simulation and dont have to spend money on making the component to test( having said that, after the final design we have to manufacture and test the component, here we try and corelate the stress etc that we obtained from the ansys reports )
